Throughout the Series
Sana is very protective of her friends, as seen in season 1 when the Pepsi Max gang called Vilde a "slut", and now In season 4 Sana still has a grudge against them for it. Sana is very confident in her own skin, and is quite sassy and maybe a little mean at some point, but she is also very kind, caring and reasonable
Sana has brown eyes, darker skin than her friends and dimples. She always wears a hijab and dresses mostly in black. She is of average build and height.
Despite Sana and Eva' first connection including Sana's advice that Eva dumped Jonas, Sana and Eva are good friends.
Sana and Vilde are good friends. Vilde wasn't a fan of the idea of Sana joining their Russ bus originally, but she came around when Sana proved to be an asset to the team, and most of all a good friend.
Sana and Noora have a good friendship. They recognize each other as strong women, yet they are able to talk about their feelings, like when Noora told Sana about her and William.
Sana and Chris are close friends. They met through German class, following which Chris introduced Sana to Vilde, Eva and Noora. During fall break, Chris and Sana schemed to scare Eva, Vilde and Noora in the cabin. They're also seen riding hooverboards in the school yard.
Sana and Isak's friendship started out as biology-partners, but later grew into a real friendship. While working on their project, Sana and Isak exchange ideas about their views on life. Sana admits she wasn't right when she talked about homosexuality, and is later shown supportive of his relationship with Even. For Christmas, Sana gave Isak the 10% of the drugs she hid for him after the party at Eva's in the beginning of the third season.
In Season 2 Sana mentions her brother's engagement to Jamilah. She doesn't appear to be particulary close to him.
